Governance



As we continue to grow TJX as a global, off-price, value retailer, we recognize that we must remain grounded in the same principles on which our Company was founded – operating with high levels of honesty and integrity, and treating others with dignity and respect. We rely on the talent and efforts of our Associates, as well as the example set by our leaders, to help us live these principles every day and foster the continued success of our Company. Engagement with key stakeholders has informed enhancements to our policies, practices, and disclosures.

Our Board of Directors is responsible for overseeing the business and management of the Company. We believe our Board should be composed of highly engaged directors and that the Board’s skills and experience be aligned with the changing needs of the Company for current and future business environments. As a global company with hundreds of thousands of Associates and operations on four continents, we consider inclusion and diversity to be part of who we are and core to our culture. We look for a Board that represents a diversity of backgrounds and experience, including as to gender and race/ethnicity, and that reflects a range of talents, ages, skills, viewpoints, professional experiences, geographies, and educational backgrounds.




Director Qualifications and Nominations


The Corporate Governance Committee recommends to the Board individuals to be director nominees who, in the opinion of the Committee, will be committed to the long-term success of our business and the best interests of our shareholders. The Committee considers a range of factors when considering individual candidates, including personal and professional ethics, integrity, and values; independence; and diversity, including gender, ethnic, racial, age, and geographic.

The Committee seeks nominees who have established strong professional reputations with experience in substantive areas that are important to the long-term success of our complex, global business, such as:
